Contrary to much media confusion in recent months, Windows XP Reloaded is the codename for a marketing campaign that is running throughout the autumn of 2004, aimed at renewing consumer interest in Windows XP, now three years old and not due to be replaced until at least 2006. More information about the XP reloaded program is available on the SuperSite for Windows website.
According to the Windows IT Pro magazine network WinInfo Daily Update, there will be no “Windows XP SE” and the next Windows releases will be:
- Windows 2000 SP5 (although this will be minor and certainly won’t have the same attention to security detail as XP SP2 did).
- Windows Server 2003 SP1.
- Windows Server 2003 release 2 (R2) – the next interim Windows server release.
- Windows 2006 (codenamed Longhorn) – the next client release.
A more extensive list of upcoming Windows product releases is available on the SuperSite for Windows.
